Monta Ellis stayed hot on Wednesday with 27 points, six rebounds, a season-high 13 assists, six steals and two 3-pointers on 9-of-24 shooting in 45 minutes of a tough win over the Rockets.
Ellis is killing it right now, and even hit the game-winning three in this one. He came in averaging 19 points, 4.6 rebounds, 7.4 assists and 2.4 steals over his previous five games, and sits at 24.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 10.5 assists, 6.0 steals and 2.0 3-pointers over his last two, when we've seen Brandon Jennings all but disappear, especially late in games. It's hard to say if Ellis will stay this hot and Jennings this cold, but for now, Ellis is as hot as any player in the league, and has swiped six steals in each of his last two games.
